1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 to your Desktop
Link: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

  • Click on Avenger.zip to open the file
  • Extract avenger.exe to your desktop

2. Now, start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon on your desktop.

  • Leave the script box empty.
  • Leave the ticked box "Scan for rootkit" ticked.
  • Then tick "Disable any rootkits found"
  • Now click on the Execute to begin execution of the script.
  • Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    The Avenger will automatically do the following:

  • It will Restart your computer.
  • On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
  • After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avengerís actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
  • The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.
3. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply.

The log File says no root kit
Logfile of The Avenger Version 2.0, (c) by Swandog46
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Platform: Windows Vista

*******************

Script file opened successfully.
Script file read successfully.

Backups directory opened successfully at C:\Avenger

*******************

Beginning to process script file:

Rootkit scan active.
No rootkits found!


Completed script processing.

*******************

Finished! Terminate.

PS My PC would not shutdown or restart so I X'd the no disk window and got the blue screen, selected start widows nomally and One Care said Virus Prtection off and wouldn't start it when I clicked turn on.
I restarted again and things went normally
Thanks thadiusj2

Hmm, I wonder why the avenger didn't find the hidden driver, it usually does.
Unless the driver is disabled.


  • Download combofix from here
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Combofix will need to be renamed because the rootkit will block it otherwise.

    # If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

    * Tools->Options->Main tab
    * Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

    # During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:





    # It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.
    # Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.
    # Close any open browsers.

  • We also need to disable your local AV (Anti-virus) before running Combofix.
  • See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for how to disable your AV. (Windows live one care)
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe.
  • Follow the prompts. NOTE:
  • ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
    ***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.


  • The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.



  • Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
  • Accept the End-User License Agreement.
  • The Recovery Console will be installed.
  • You will then get this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes



  • Allow combofix to run
  • Post C:\combofix.txt back here.

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

Hi I think I posted the log file from Combofix but it's not here did you get it?
Malawarebytes found the same thing called it a trojan agent I removed it but it didn't save the log file for some reason. GMER has not got the red highlighted files anymore, just 3 microsoft ones, seems Combo fix and Malawarebytes have done the job at this stage.
Malawarebytes had another update I am running the scan takes hours!
hopefully things are fixed
thanks Thadiusj2

Hello.
The screenshot is too small to read, but from what I can make out, it looks like a hardware device isn't working correctly?

Hardware isn't my area, so if it's a hardware problem, post in our hardware section and Doc might be able to help you.
